Danes pursue dialogue

Turkish newspaperZaman notes in their English edition that the Danes are 'seeking forgiveness'.

"Danish state channel DR2 employed a Muslim woman that practices wearing the headscarf to present a TV program in the frame of "respect towards different thoughts and beliefs." Palestinian-origin Asmaa Abdulhamid, in the eight-week program, will host a different guest every week together with Danish journalist Adam Holm and ask questions in accordance with her beliefs.

DR2 explained the basic goal of the program "Adam and Asmaa" is "respecting different thoughts" and said the cartoon crisis openly displayed the importance of dialogue and tolerance between the East and the West."

If you speak Danish you can get it from DR2 at their own website. I don't speak Danish, myself, but I did deduce that 'og' means 'and'. I shall reward my own cleverness with a slice of havarti.

I'm not sure what to make of this, but it is too bizzare not to mention. I'll keep an eye on those sneaky Danes.
